Hetherman Named As Little East Baseball Pitcher Of The Week

UMass Dartmouth sophomore righthander Tucker Hetherman was named as the Little East Conference Baseball Pitcher of the Week on Monday afternoon for his efforts in last Tuesday’s 7-0 league victory over third-ranked Southern Maine at the UMD Baseball Field.

A native of Webster, Mass. and a graduate of Bay Path Regional Vocational Technical High School, Hetherman scattered five hits and recorded a strikeout in 7 1/3 scoreless frames against the Huskies, and he picked up his second win over a nationally-ranked team of the season.  Tucker also topped then 23-ranked UMass Boston by an 8-2 margin back on March 23rd in a Little East road clash, as he struck out six over six innings of work.  On the season, Hetherman has posted a 2-1 overall mark with a 3.57 earned run average, as he has fanned 15 in 22 2/3 innings to date.

Head Coach Bob Prince’s squad, which stands at 10-12 overall and 4-4 in Little East play, returns to action on Thursday afternoon when the Corsairs travel to Beverly, Mass. to take on Endicott in a non-league outing that begins at 3:30 pm EDT.
